It takes special people to inspire the kind of trust that I usually reserve for my own mother when pouring my wines. James and the staff at Treadwell Cuisine are those kind of people.
Our relationship with the Treadwell family dates back to our initial foray into the wine business some ten years ago. In fact, it was at a Treadwell supplier dinner in 2008 where we nervously introduced the first Five Rows wines to the public – 12 bottles of 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon in special makeshift labels. They made us feel so comfortable that we never left, eagerly tagging along from Port Dalhousie to downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake.
They understand that we are grape farmers first and foremost who happen to make a bit of wine, and promote our brand accordingly. It is the place that has introduced our wines to more people than any other, and I truly consider them to be an extension of the Five Rows tasting room.
With great pleasure we announce the dates of our annual Treadwell Winemaker Dinners. Please join us on January 26 or March 2nd for some wonderful food pairings that will inevitably make our wines shine their brightest.
As always, I promise to bring Howie and Wilma!
